We have highlighted the amazing work of New Zealand designer David Trubridge before, but we wanted to come back and show you his colorful Kitset lampshades, which can be freestanding or used as a pendant. Made of bamboo, the shades are painted on the inside, providing just a hint of color.

As we wrote before, all of the wood Trubridge uses is from sustainably managed plantations in Australia, New Zealand, or the U.S. He uses plywood, since it produces the least waste when it's converted from timber, and creates designs that use the minimum amount of material possible. The wood is either left natural, or finished with non-toxic natural oils, in the case of the Kitset lampshades. Any plastic used is designed to be separated and recycled.

Prices for the Kitset lampshades run from $535 to $1,180. See more of his work here.
